Categorically NO! I know of no indication or recognized treatment of accupuncture for treating arrhythmia. It is not a choice i would make and i would be very, very cautious to know the risks involved and any other treatments recommended and certainly the advice of the participating physician (cardiologist/electrophysiologist). Be careful! be very careful!
See below. I recommend that for serious arrythmias, you place your trust in the hands of a good cardiologist. There are auricular protocols for bradycardia , pvc's & tachycardia. However, it is always important to have your physician's blessing before pursuing adjunctive medicine. If you noticed i said “adjunctive”- this means that alternative medicine might compliment but not replace standard care. Cont'd.
Won't hurt. You can try, but it is unlikely to help an svt.
